    Ancient Greeks Drank Beer



    In addition to wine, the Ancient Greeks also brewed and drank beer.

    https://www.archaeology.org/news/628...e-beer-brewing

    THESSALONIKI, GREECE—According to the Greek Reporter, Soultana-Maria Valamoti of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and her team have uncovered evidence of beer brewing during the Bronze Age, between the third and second centuries B.C. The researchers recovered cereal residues, germinated cereal grains, and pieces of milled cereals inside two houses at the archaeological site of Archontiko, which is located in northern Greece. They suggest that the grains had been malted and charred. Similar evidence has been found in central Greece, at the site of Argissa. Valamonti said the practice of brewing beer may have spread to Greece from the eastern Mediterranean. To read more about ancient drinking, go to "Recreating Nordic Grog."

    When I was in Athens, I drank Greek beer; it was pretty good!

    Though I'm sure it was different from the kind the ancients drank.

    I wonder if they'll ever figure out how strong the beer was. I heard once that the Egyptians had beer as well but it's alcohol content was much lower than what's out there today
